TC7 L.M.S. / B.R. Black Five with welded tender.

Built as a multiple purpose engine for the L.M.S. railway and designed by Sir William Stanier. A total of 842 locomotives were built between 1934 and 1951 by five different builders. This model depicts the batch built by Armstrong Whitworth and numbered in the series 5225-5451 and fitted with the long firebox. A total of 226 locomotives were built by Whitworths making it the largest single order for virtually identical steam locomotives ever placed in the United Kingdom. Most, but not all, originally built with welded tenders but many were exchanged for riveted tenders in later years The last of the class were withdrawn in 1968. The model here is as built with the welded tender, kit TC8 depicts it with the rivetted tender.
